Get-together 2018 - Happy New Year!

02 January 2018 23:23:11

Get-together 13 January 2018 Johnstown Garden Centre

Happy New Year to all! Well, the turkey is probably well gone by now, and even if there are still a few days before the decorations come down and the children go back to school, the recent bright but cold days recently may have tempted us to think gardens again .....

And it is time to start planning for the Get-together!

I’ll put up a timetable and details of the day over the next week or so – and I’ll be hoping for volunteers to help on the day! I’ll also need to know if you intend to come, as Johnstown will need to have a rough idea of numbers before the event! I know a number of people have already indicated that they plan to attend but I’ll need people to put comments on the Get-together Journals to make sure they get counted!

Rachel has asked me to let you all know that she will be coming to Johnstown so if you have ordered her book “Journal of an Irish Garden” from her, or would like to order it (for the great price of €10) please contact her directly and she will be happy to bring the books to Johnstown for you!

Love the picture Hazel - great winter colour. I presume that's the roof of the new-build next door - still it doesn't spoil your lovely garden.

Wow Hazel your garden looks amazing, love the colours, could be summer!!!! See you in Johnstown!

Thanks for the e-mail re get together. However I would like to be excused. I hope the get together will be a successful and that all will enjoy it. The garden really looks good.

Elizabeth - that's not the house - just the builders canteen - a very large container!

Linda - just noticed how these plants compliment each other in winter! 

Dick - that's a shame! You'll be missed!

Happy New Year Hazel. At the moment, it's unlikely I'll be able to travel on the Saturday but if that changes I'll let you know. Hate the thought of missing it!

Gorgeous winter scene in your garden.I am looking forward to the get together and if you need any help, just ask. Thanks again for all your work in organising it.

Happy New Year, Hazel; lovely plant combination in your garden.  I'm looking forward to the get-together too and will be glad to help out on the day.  When this wind dies down must go out and see what plant swaps I might have!

Happy New Year, Hazel. The very best with the get-together. I'm looking forward already to seeing plenty of photos and hearing all about it.

Happy New Year, Hazel. I won’t be able to travel unfortunately, hopefully there may be something at a better time of year for driving. Best of luck with it, you are great to do the hard work every year!

Thank you Hazel for your enterprising courage in organising the Annual Get Together which I would hate to miss, and I see Moya is offereing me a lft.  That is so kind.  

The grouping of plants on your picture at this time of year is just perfect.  There are no extraneous distractions.  

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Hazel, your garden is looking great! I'm really looking forward to the get together. I don't know if I'll have much to swap but will have a look. I got the Kris Kindle present today. I'm very happy to help out if needed.
